Welcome to Belmont online!
Belmont Synagogue is an orthodox community of six hundred families in north-west London founded in the mid-1960s. We have a wide range of communal activities including daily services, educational programmes and special activities for all age groups.
The community is led by Rabbi Marc Levene and his wife Lisa, as well as Chair, Barbara Mazliah, and a Board of Management.
No longer one of the best kept secrets in the United Synagogue, we are surrounded by excellent Jewish primary and secondary schools.
Belmont is also surrounded by an eruv, which connects to other local eruvim and makes it easier to celebrate Shabbat with friends and family.
You will find more about Belmont on this website but the best way to get to know us it to visit. We promise you a very warm welcome.
Local shops and caterers offering deliveries or click-and-collect services are listed on the food shopping & takeaways page. There is also a list of other kosher shops throughout north west London which can be downloaded and a list of restaurants open for takeaways.

It is with heavy hearts we announced that the Synagogue is closed again for all services. We are alarmed by both local and national statistics and feel that the safest and most sensible action will be to follow all government advice, which is to stay indoors as much as possible.
We realise how important our services are to many members, as well as the several smachot due to take place in the coming weeks.
Our hope and prayers are that this will be only for the short term, and that the world will be quickly rid of this horrific virus.
We will continue to monitor the situation and review our options on a regular basis and keep the community informed.
